I had the chance to do birding in Coron and Busuanga when I last visited that area of Palawan. When I returned to Palawan for a Balabac trip, I made sure to allot a day to do some birding in Puerto Princesa before taking the trip. I availed of Totic’s Palawan Birding and Photography to help me spot the birds here which came highly recommended by friends. Palawan has around 27 endemic birds and here are my encounter with some of them for a day of birding.
Birding has been one of the activities I enjoy while traveling lately. It gets me really immersed in nature. It’s a calming activity. And being able to observe bird behavior and the species found in the area gives me an idea on the state of the environment is. My travel to Coron and Busuanga got me excited to spot more birds in the province. Palawan alone has 23 bird species out of the 218 endemic found in the Philippines. Birds of Coron and Busuanga is a collection of birds I encountered from my last trip. Surely bumped my list of bird lifers.
